mccain who would have been arrested for assaulting secretary of state hillary clinton. and third, i kept thinking about what a glorious time for the pentagon to announce it was lifting the ban on women in combat because if there was any proof that women are ready for combat, it was watching hillary clinton. in front of those senators yesterday. i thought she was magnificent! andself things about this hearing. but the first one we gotta say again, it's disgusting what the republicans have been doing. remember mitt romney started this, in the middle of the campaign, when we have a terrorist attack against the united states. it was just like 9-11 in the sense this was american soil, i don't care, benghazi is in libya but it is american soil. american consulate. terrorists attacked us. what do we do after 9-11, we all pulled together and said we're going to get those s.o.b.s. what did the republican party do after benghazi? we're going to get president obama. we're going to get hillary clinton. we're going to get susan rice. started by mitt romney. picked up by john mccain. ever since t
to this shortly -- john mccain and rand paul were tough on her. they were not backing down. >> that's right. republicans were focused on, one, the administration specifically the united nations ambassador susan rice initially in the sunday show appearances, on all five sunday shows that sunday but also an initial discussion about what happened in benghazi, the word was that this was not a terrorist attack, this was a spontaneous protest because of the anti-islam video which of course turns out not to have been the case and a lot senators were focused on why were these talking points false. johnson said dr. rice was purposefully misleading the american public. dr. rice said she was not, she was using the talking points used by the intelligence committee and no effort to mislead. she was providing as much information as she knew at the time. the other information by senator rand paul talking about the lack of accountability, how come nobody was fired. he said if he had been presented at time, and this is somebody who harbors ambitions, he would have relieved secretary clinton of her jobs, spe
is senator warren from massachusetts. senator john mccain, of course, who will introduce senator john a. boehner. also, they're -- senator john kerry. also they're waiting for hillary clinton, john kerry to be the next secretary of state. secretary clinton wrapping up 5 1/2 hours of testimony before this committee and also before the house foreign affairs committee yesterday on the attacks in benghazi. you can find those in our video library at c-span.org. >> on c-span is waiting for the start of the hearing, confirmation hearing for john kerry to be the next secretary of state. this morning announced by the white house that the president will nominate mary jo white to be the new securities and exchange commission commissioner. and we will have live coverage of his announcement expected to be this afternoon at 2:30 eastern here on c-span. >> good morning. this hearing of the senate foreign relations committee to consider the next -- the nominee for the secretary of state will come to order. let me, again, ask as i did yesterday, since the full senate has not yet passed the committee res
complaining about this at all? >> stephanie: thank you. and john mccain was just shaking his fist and i'm glad to see -- oh i'm just fighting with myself! >> well he can be slightly forgiven he had to endure another inauguration from the man who beat him. i was not sitting too far from the president during the inauguration and he was sitting next to orrin hatch, and he was wearing an orange shirt, and mccain was wearing only aviator glasses. >> stephanie: all right. rush limbaugh. >> it was like a pukefest. it was right out of banana republic. i have never seen gravelling sucking up, butt kissing, hillary clinton's testimony. and she lost her cool at one point. by the way she opened up crying, which is part of the script. >> stephanie: human. oh it's scripted. >> yes. >> it's part of the clinton script. >> don't you guys know anything yet? part of the skriment was her illness and concussion and when that got proved wrong, it had to be her emotions are part of the script. >> stephanie: karl you are good when you can fake a blood clot you are a very accomplishes actress, app
remain behind the motives for the attack itself and john mccain was also critical of the secretary in his questioning. take a listen. >> people don't bring rbgs and mortars to spontaneous demonstrations, that's a fundamental. and of course the president continued to say days afterwards, september the 12th, maeld a reference to act of terror. september 12th, too early to know. september 20th on univision, still doing an investigation. september 24th on "the view", still doing an investigation. the president of the united states as late as september 24th, did not acknowledge that this was an act of terror. >> i would urge that you look and read both the classified and unclassified versions of the arb that deals with the questions you and senator johnson are raising the timing and the like. i also hope we're looking forward. libya is still dangerous and still in a very unstable status. >> sir, as the secretary continued to testify, she also made note to say we are in a new reality when it comes to talking about the diplomacy needed for northern africa as well as in the middle east. for libya
was on that day, september 11. and then finally, senator mccain stressed why wasn't there some u.s. military power available to come to the rescue of the people who were trapped in the embassy annex so that people wouldn't have ended up dying on the roof essentially unable to protect themselves against the mortar fire they were taking. and you could see, he's still angry about it. >> rose: the other thing he considered unacceptable was her response with senator johnson when she said, "what difference does it make?" >> i thought that was an especially poignant response from secretary clinton. and it reflected an uncertainty to this day, i'm told among intelligence officers who have reviewed the evidence they have of what happened that night, believing it or not, they still don't know precisely how that attack came to happen. they know there were terrorists who were associated with al qaeda, were part of the group. they know there were others who kind of wandered into the scene. and when secretary clinton said, "what difference does it make exactly how it came together, let's find it and punish them
by u.s. intelligence officials. just don't tell that to senator john mccain. he may have to switch his anger button to off. >> the american people deserve to know answers and they certainly don't deserve false answers. the answers given to the american people on september 15th by the ambassador of the united nations were false. >> john: that's mccain still trying to win the respect of his own party. they were even more incensed over rice's alleged efforts to mislead the american public during an election year, no less to no apparent logical reason. >> again, we were misled there was supposedly protest and then something sprang out of that. an all the sprang out of that. that was easily ascertainable. that was not the fact and the american people could have known that for days. >> with all due respect the fact is we had four dead americans. whether it was because of a protest or because guys out for a walk and they decided to go kill some americans. what difference at this point does it make? it is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent from ever happeni
? >> all eyes quickly turned to tough-talking war hero, republican senator john mccain, saying allowing women to serve in combat units is the right thing to do. for women like these in boot camp at paris island, the change will open up more than 2,000 jobs that had been available only to men. no changes made in toughness or strength standards. >> if they can meet the qualifications for the job, then they should have the right to serve. >> defense secretary leone panetta pointed out 150 women have been killed in combat, serving in iraq and afghanistan with men. >> they're fighting and dying together. and the time has come for our policies to recognize that reality. >> reporter: women can move immediately to medium-size combat brigades as pilots, medics and the like. small frontline combat platoons will not be open to women, maybe for years until commander can propose specific units that might remain men only, like the navy s.e.a.l.s or delta force commandos the retired lieutenant general boykin of the family research council say all front line units should remained closed. >> my concern
's outgoing chairman enjoyed support, just about from everybody, and from hillary clinton and john mccain as well on his glide path towards confirmation to be secretary of state. that's the easy part. the hard part is what comes next. joining me now for our daily fix is chris caliz sxwl a and post politics.com nbc capitol hill correspondent kelly oh donnell and usa today's washington bureau chief, susan page. thanks very much. first to you. >> sure. >> john kerry has a lot -- very heavy lift to climbing budgets, climbing support for the state department. you have pakistan and afghanistan, with the drawal from afghanistan that will only make it harder, and that has impact on pakistan. china, and russia. leadership in russia, as you know, very, very complicated. where does he look first for support, and, you know, who wants this job? >> i would say the middle east -- the hard thing that you hit on is the challenges for a secretary of state and for the united states generally in foreign policy have not waned. they have probably increased. in libya and benghazi and secretary clinton tried to
committee experience with senator mccain over those years. we had subcommittees. we took it very seriously. we held hearings. we brought people in. we had a three-day markup that was sack crow sank but we had the qdr, where the defense department submitted that and it helped to provide a framework. when i got to the state department, i said, there is nothing like that at the state department. so i started the first ever quad ren yell first ever qdr. you can help me continue that and make the department have to ask the hard questions if you legs late the way the qdr is legs lated for the defense department. secondly, you can help by making sure that the needs we come to you with, like what are the training needs, the budgetary needs, the bureaucratic changes that are needed, that you help support that. and certainly we've talked a little bit about the budget, but getting that transfer authority, if you can help us with the house, it's $1.4 billion, marine security guard detachment, 553 million, we've been closely coordinating with d.o.d., historically marine security guards do not do person
, congress has refused requests for more money and cut the state department budget. senator john mccain, a critic of the administration's response to the attacks, said clinton's answers were unsatisfactory. >> the american people and the families of these four brave americans still have not gotten the answers that they deserve. i hope that they will get them. >> reporter: secretary clinton connected what happened in benghazi to the rise of al qaeda splinter groups in nearby mali and the recent terrorist attack in algeria. she warned the events are linked. instability in north africa has opened a pandora's box of threats against the united states. >> pelley: margaret, thank you. one man who will be called in to deal with those threats is general john allen, and we learned today that president obama will resubmit allen's nomination as commander of nato forces in europe. the pentagon investigated general allen for sending potentially inappropriate e- mails to a florida woman linked to the david petraeus scandal, but yesterday allen was cleared of wrongdoing. the battle over the debt ceilin
, along with lindsey graham and senator mccain and others. in the interim, i urged the administration to act immediately to suspend foreign assistance if the tunisian government permitted in obstructing the investigation. on january 4, i received a tepid response from the acting deputy, assistant administrator for public affairs at usaid, which i submit for the record, it was a bland assurance that the tunisian government was cooperating. was cooperating? five weeks and the f.b.i. had to wait? then the f.b.i. three hours to talk to him? and we gave this government $325 million last year. today i wrote usaid expressing my disappointment that the administrator himself could not respond directly to a member of congress who serves on a committee of jurisdiction and further pointed out what should be obvious, the tunisian government did not cooperate. the tunisian government never sought the aid, u.s. taxpayer money was in jeopardy. they have not faced a single consequence for undermining u.s. national security. i submit the letter for the record. sadly, the failure to respond forcibly and
paul, and this is also a look at -- the faces of the republicans, rand paul, ron johnson and john mccain looked so pathetic. and to me, there's something called decorum. and when rand paul sits there and to the second highest ranking official in our country and someone who has done a spectacular job says i would have had your job, that's pathetic. that's the amateur hour. and that's the republicans. >> willie. >> he's got a right to challenge her on it. he's not supposed to sit there. >> that is nir jtheir job. >> and just celebrate you. >> i would have relieved you of your duty? >> that's an idiot. >> kelly o'donnell, you were up on the hill yesterday. aside from all the fireworks, we saw some good pieces of videotape there. did we learn anything new actually about what happened on september 11th in benghazi? is there any new information to come out of that hearing? >> well, there were some threads and details that were interesting, i thought. secretary clinton talked about the fact that they did not have access to the surveillance video that showed what went on for a period of weeks. i
. >>brian: tell me what you think of this from senator mccain and senator rand paul. >> i categorically reject your answer to senator johnson about, well, we didn't ask these survivors who were flown to ramstein the next day, that this was not a spontaneous demonstration. to say it was because an investigation was going on -- >> had i been president at the time and i found you did not read the cables from benghazi, did not read the cables from ambassador stevens, i would have relieved you of your post. i think it's inexcusable. >> those were two of the best statements made along with senator johnson's question. what did she do with the statement from senator mccain and the statement from senator paul? she didn't reply at all. then they went on to the next question. >>brian: her answer was interesting and it was very easy, for four months she had the answer. her answer was everything is addressed to me that comes into the state department. but i don't see every cable. it is not possible. >> it's too much for me to read. you know what? it's her job to know things. it's her job to execute
things that we see greater cooperation on. >> senator mccain. >> thank you. again, thank you for allowing me the honor of introducing you to the committee and i look forward to many of our spirited conversations that we have had for many years. i didn't want to bring it up but since it was brought up, i have to respond again. americans do care. they do care. they do care why four americans were murdered and they do care why the american people were misled. they were misled by the talking points that the sec -- that secretary rice told the american people which were false. they were misled when the information that we needed to know about how those talking points were put together, which we still don't know the answers to, many months later. we were misled when it was -- when we were not allowed to -- when we don't -- still haven't gotten answers why there was not better security at the consulate when there was clear indications of the threat. we were misled when we were not told that there was a request for the 16-member security force to remain at the consulate and were removed. the list

information. >> ifill: republican john mccain pressed clinton on why u.s. consular staff evacuated from libya to germany weren't questioned sooner. >> i categorically reject your answer to senator johnson about, well, we didn't ask these survivors, who were flown to ramstein the next day, that they-- that this was not a spontaneous demonstration. to say that it's because an investigation was going on-- the american people deserve to know answers, and they certainly don't deserve false answers. so here we are, four months later, and we still don't have the basic information. now, if you want to go out and tell the american people what happened, you should at least have interviewed the people who were there instead of saying, no, we couldn't talk to them because an f.b.i. investigation was going on. >> well, senator, i understand your very strong feelings. you knew chris. you were a friend of chris. you were one of the staunchest supporters of the efforts to dislodge qaddafi and try to give the libyan people a chance. and we just have a disagreement. we have a disagreement about what did happen
ceiling. john mccain's decision, i support the decision. i think women are fully qualified to carry out the mission but i want to see the same physical standard requirements. nothing of the like of a change, women would have to fit the same requirements that are in place right now for men. what is your reaction? >> i think they're not too difficult to attain. young people whether they're men or women can quite easily attain the physical standards established for the forces. there are different physical forces for special operations forces, for rangers for s.e.a.l.s and so on. they're more difficult to attain but for infantry, armor, artillery units, i don't think women, young people have any problem whatsoever with them. >> i think it's interesting and people may not realize that women limited and i want to pull up the number. quinnipiac poll, should women be allowed to serve in combat roles? 75% say yes. 22% say no. also limited how far they could rank in the military. >> if you increase the number of women who are in combat roles, in combat units, you're by definition increasing the a
mccain yesterday. [video clip] >> why is it the administration still refuses to provide the full text with the deletion of terrorism in the talking points? why do we care? because of the classified ever mission had been included, it is an entirely different version of events to the american people. going to the american people to tell them what happened, then you ought to have your facts al qaeda iscluding a decimated and our embassies are secure. here we are four months later and we still do not have the basic information. if you want to go out and tell the american people what happened, you should at least have interviewed the people who were there. instead of saying, no we cannot talk to them because an fbi investigation was going on. host: front page. our next call is an independent from ohio. caller: good morning. i have two. . first, there is no doubt in my mind what happened was muddied for political reasons. if you refuse to associate with a government that plays politics when their allies in the balance of decisions, everybody lies, but the question i asked is who gets the wo
community? >> well, remember, president bush worked in a bipartisan fashion, john mccain, republican. ted kennedy, the lead sponsor, a democrat, president bush working in concerts 3 years. i would remind you, president obsmga was one of the people in the senate who voted to kill that bipartisan immigration reform, voting for every killer amendment offered up by the labor union. there is an element in the republican party, many of us believing that the issue must be settled. but the question's going to be, will the president work in a bipartisan fashion on this? or will he attempt to use it for partisan gain as he has the last four years? he could have taken this issue off the table in 2009 or 2010. but it wasn't apparently important enough for him to deal with. how will he approach the issue? bipartisan or confrontation? >> on the flip side, joe ogun control, there doesn't seem to be a lot of indication that the president has reached out to the other side on this issue. in fact, all indications are there is going to be this effort to go grassroots and really put the pressure on from the o
newtown. senator john mccain is on the senate foreign relations panel now. so is senator rand paul. on the senate side we may have some more pointed questions, but we will have to see. on the house side, they say they want to have more bipartisan attitude towards hearings. it is hard to tell at this point. there's a lot of new blood. this is their first chance, a big public opportunity to show where they are headed. so it is hardr -- to tell. probably the senate will have more pointed questions. host: give us a hint of something you will be watching for today. is there anything secretary clinton could do to damage your future politically? anything the republicans could do that might signify how confirmation hearings could go in the next couple weeks for secretary of state? guest: a few lawmakers, and the gramm in particular, have said that they had wanted to hear her testify before taking action on senator john kerry. -- lindsey graham in particular has said. the fallout from benghazi is already happened, to a large extent. president obama's first choice to be secretary of state, s
